The New York Times has partnered with Abercrombie & Kent
to launch a new travel program, 36 Hours+, inspired by the newspaper's "36
Hours" travel articles.
The program is a collection of 10 itineraries, each of which
is four days long and geared toward independent travel. Each FIT tour includes
three nights' accommodation, private airport transfers with an English-speaking
guide, two local tours, 24/7 concierge service and a local restaurant
There are no set departure dates, and travelers can choose
to stay in one of three featured hotels in each destination. Additional
activities, such as a cooking class or a driving tour, can be added to each
Abercrombie & Kent is operating these programs.
The first 36 Hours+ destinations include the Amalfi Coast,
Italy; Belfast, Northern Ireland; Mexico City; Bogota, Colombia; Casablanca,
Morocco; Reykjavik, Iceland; and Porto, Portugal.
The 36 Hours+ program is part of the New York Times' travel
division, Times Journeys.
